Lustau is the only winery that produces wines in each of the three cities in the Sherry triangle: Jerez de la Frontera, El Puerto de Santa María and Sanlúcar de Barrameda. Located in a privileged and unique area.
Vineyards and wineries have filled the countryside and shaped the cities of the Sherry region since its inception. White limestone hills, known as albariza and wineries with vaulted, cathedral-like ceilings; have filled every corner in this geographic triangle with incomparable colours, aromas and sensations.
The biological ageing, in which the wines age under a veil of yeasts known as flor; is a completely natural phenomenon. These yeasts prevent the wine from being in contact with the air and transform its flavors and organoleptic profile. This miracle originates in the white albariza soils that dominate the vineyards in Jerez and develops successfully thanks to the special conditions of temperature and humidity inside the wineries.
Each wine (Oloroso and Pedro Ximénez) is matured, separately in its own solera for 12 years. Once blended together, the resulting sherry is returned to a 45-cask solera for a further 3 years ageing. In centuries gone by, casks with sherry were lashed to ships sailing for the Indies as ballast and were found to develop an extraordinary smoothness and complexity. Lustau has revived this style of sherry in the East India wine.
Dark mahogany in colour with green-amber edge. It offers vibrant notes of maple syrup, brown sugar, shoe polish, raisin and chocolate beer nuts, all very well integrated. On the palate it is smooth and rich at the beginning, full of prune and burned oranges peel flavours. Provocative spicy notes appear just before its nuttiness and terrific acidity cuts through the sweetness. A truly unforgettable finish.
Serve slightly chilled, between 10 – 12ºC (50 – 54ºF). This wine is a perfect companion to light desserts and cakes, but can also be served with creamy cheeses or foie-gras. Try it also on the rocks with a slice of orange, simply delicious.
